  Jobs After Culinary School  
After culinary school, don't sit still for too long. On your way to becoming a professional chef, you will need to polish your knives and hit the ground running. There are many different career paths available to those who are qualified. After you have gotten your training in, it is time to consider what to do next. Here are just a handful of options you may have. Follow your passion and the opportunities that present themselves to you.

Many culinary graduates enter the workforce working for full service restaurants including those stand alone restaurants and hotel chains. These positions may start as assistants and often start in the kitchen as prep work. This is quite important since it teaching the student not only how to cook food but how the kitchen is run. Once they learn to meet the high demands on their time in these beginning positions, those who prove themselves worthy move up the chain of command. Their goal is to one day be head chef in the restaurant.

Many of those who leave culinary school have a much larger idea of what they would like to do. Many are passionate about opening their own restaurant. This does require a much larger commitment, but it is very possible to do well in this area with the right education. Often, it is best to work in the industry for some time before committing to just a large financial investment.

Others leave school to enter other professional chef areas. For example, many plan to spend a great deal of time developing a catering business. Others wish to open a pastry location, perhaps a bakery. These businesses may not require the immediate requirements of working in a kitchen, but they do often require internships with these locations instead. This gives the individual the experience they need to be successful from the start.

As a professional shift, you can always make changes to the plans you have so that they better fit your skills or your passions at that time. There is no strict rule on what you have to do after you leave school. Many apprentice and take internships to gain valuable knowledge and skills in the kitchen and beyond. These skills are often more important than those offered to you during your days in culinary school. For some, this is the time to start dreaming and crafting plans of how they will develop their culinary education even farther.
